Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway

 

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1!! Today we are celebrating Altenew turning 5 years old!!  If you’ve arrived here from Chameleon Art Products blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Let’s take a look:

Live Your Dream Die Cut Embellishments

I created this cute photo card. Such a great why to showoff your latest adventure. I saw this idea a couple a month ago on YouTube and knew that I wanted to give it a try.

Let’s take a closer look:

To create the card with the closure, I used We R Memory Keepers Tab Punch Board.

Live Your Dream Die Cut Embellishments

To keep the card closed I used a retired Tombow Hook & Loop Tab. It’s a piece of Velcro, that does not tear the paper.

Live Your Dream Die Cut Embellishments

I used the Live Your Dream Puffy Alphabet Stickers to decorate the die cut embellishment.

Live Your Dream Die Cut Embellishment

For the photo, I created a tag using We R Memory Keepers Tag Punch Board. I used Altenew Gold Washi Tape from the New Day Card Kit to decorate it.

Then I adhered the photo on top and done.

Super quick and easy.

Let’s take another look:

Live Your Dream Die Cut Embellishments

I love how this photo card turned out. Big enough to display a photo and small enough to fit in you pocketbook.

UWF Poppy Field Blog Hop

Poppy Field Stamp Set

Hello everyone and welcome to the UWF Poppy Field Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing a stamp set collaboration between Altenew and Ellen Huton.  If you’ve arrived here from the talented Kittie Caracciolo blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my layout:

Poppy Field Stamp Set

Say hello to my new niece Savannah!!  I wanted to showcase her today along with the new Poppy Field Stamp set because both of them are beautiful.

 

Poppy Field Stamp SetI used Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection, Altenew Evergreen Ink, Altenew Jet Black Ink, Altenew Cosmic Berry Ink, Altenew Puffy Heart Ink, Altenew Warm Sunshine Ink, Altenew Caramel Toffee Ink along with Poppy Field Stamp and Die Set.

Here’s how to create this page:

I decided on which photo I wanted to use and converted into black and white.

Then I cut a piece of cardstock a little bit bigger then the photo so that it peeks out from behind the photo.

Using the edge of the scissors, rub it over the edge to create a distress look.  Using the bone folder, bend the edges.

Cut two strips of the same cardstock and sew the strips the bottom of the layout.

Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection

Using the photo and the background cardstock as a guide, use Altenew Evergreen Ink to create some watercolor platters on the layout.

Altenew Evergreen Ink

Once that dries, adhere the cardstock and photo to the layout.

Stamp the flowers using coordinating inks, die cut them out and adhere them to the base of the photo.

Poppy Field Stamp and Die Set

Next, add different types of embellishments that coordinate with the layout.

Altenew Scapbook Reflection Collection

To stamp the sentiment, use the Memory MISTI so that the placement is perfect.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 207 – Rough

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card:

Week 207 - Rough

Take a look at my card:

Life story (CAS)

This week’s cue card is Rough!!  I have to admit I was having a hard time with this word.  How do I make a card that is CAS but still rough.  I decided to use an embellishment as my focal point.

So what does my card say about the cue card?  Well, the circles were created with Peony Pink Nuvo Mousse and Clarity Stencil Jo’s Bubbles  I purposely created the circle rough, so that you can see the cue card for yourself.  Then I wonder what sentiment should I use with these rough circles.

I decided to go with Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint II to stamp the  Life story because life can be rough at times.  Its someone’s story.   At times its mine!!

Creating this card was simple:

I spread the mousse over the circle stencil roughly so that some portions of the circles wouldn’t be smooth.

Then I stamped the sentiment using the Mini Misti.

Nice, simple and still CAS!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
